So pretty. I really love it. I’m very new to turning, and have only a tiny lathe so far, so I’m wondering about the original glue-up blank. Did you start with roughly cylindrical stock? Was the mahogany bit smaller to begin with, or were they both about the same, and you turned a lot of the mahogany away? Thanks for sharing.

You’ve got a good eye for form, and access to some great woods. I love the simplicity of your shop.

Well thanks for the comments,first photo=I really take pict as they are ,no fancy set up because the piece is as you see it ,too many times they look like a million bucks ,and in true life they are nothing like the pic,the mahogany neck is a bunch of cut offs fron a friend ,craft shop,they never use those for anything( my gain)I start with a 5×5 of catahua that also was given to me by the same shop,they never use spalted wood,also my gain,make the vase,the part of the neck had terrible worm holes so y return that part and put the neck on the top,made many that way,you can see some examples in my web,for toyguy= just get your self some buckeye is almost the same thingthanks steve,my shop is used by me 12 hours a day more or less not hobby turning,if Im not here at the pc Im there turning away ,or making visits to metal turner to try few thing I see here ,got to make me a steady rest,lol
